OpenMW ported to the Nintendo switch

Post by thephantomfiddler » 07 Jun 2019, 00:44

So just today someone published their port of openmw to the Nintendo switch to gbatemp: https://gbatemp.net/threads/openmw-for-switch.540250/
According to the author the performance is not very good right now, but overall playable.

Can't they just play Skyrim? Someone will figure out how to mod it on the switch and just use skywind when it's released.

They can if they want to, but why? Morrowind is a game, OpenMW is an engine that will runs games. Different scope. It means that any games that work with OpenMW will also be playable on the switch.

Skywind != Morrowind.

If that were true, alot more people would be playing skywind instead of Morrowind. Skywind just doesn't have the same aesthetics as the original Morrowind. (Though I will admit, skywind is an amazing project, and will probably run better than openmw on the switch currently)
